We are pleased to announce the release of Flash Media Playback 1.5 and Strobe Media Playback 1.5!

Flash/Strobe Media Playback 1.5 include some exciting new features, including:

  • Multicast support (IP Multicast, P2P Multicast, and Fusion Multicast)
  • A YouTube plug-in for playing back YouTube videos in Strobe Media Playback
  • A JavaScript API for creating player controls
  • An exploratory HTML5 fallback player that has the same chrome as Strobe Media Playback

Flash Media Playback can be configured using the online setup tool.

The Strobe Media Playback swf and source are also available. In addition, Strobe Media Playback is now licensed under the BSD license. This should provide users more flexibility in using the source code.
